The Scoop on CREAM

By: Rebecca Charur

Real talk: there is a pretty extensive list of things I’d rather do than drive an hour north to Weston. BUT, with a solid playlist, one hand on the wheel and the other squeezing an ice cream sandwich, the drive becomes the exciting road trip we sometimes crave.

CREAM, an acronym for “Cookies Rule Everything Around Me,” is a fun casual atmosphere, ideal for your post lunch/dinner cravings. Since its opening in January, South Florida foodies have flocked to the franchise’s Weston location in the hopes of sinking their teeth into the hand crafted ice cream sandwiches.

Upon entering CREAM, I was met by the mouth watering scent of warm chocolate chip and sugar cookies, guiding me to a line of hungry hopefuls deciding which fresh baked cookie they would use to sandwich the creamy ice cream.

So here's the scoop. Customizing a dessert is a potentially daunting experience, especially when faced with 17 different cookie flavors; waffle, brownie and do’sant (a doughnut croissant hybrid) sandwiches; 23 premium ice cream flavors and 17 toppings. In light of the heaps of delicious ingredients, here are some of our favorite mix-n-match options from our latest visit to CREAM:
